Add new HDD to LVM group

First step: use gdisk (or fdisk)

#gdisk /dev/sdb
and select part code 8e00 -  LVM partition

we need to prepare our new partitions for LVM 

#pvcreate /dev/sdb1

Check pvs

Second step: extends the logical partition as far as it can. No need to check and calculate GBs or blocks in various methods.

#vgextend /dev/ubuntu-vg /dev/sdb1

Third step: Extent the logical to max of new extented VG 

#lvresize -l +100%FREE /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu-lv

Step 4 extends the file system to the size of the logical partition.
#resize2fs /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv

PS: On Ubuntu 18.04 I have to reboot or remount (mount-a) to update the full new space

Let’s shrink it to 10GB again:

#lvreduce -L10G /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu-lv


— Logical volume —
LV Path /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu-lv
LV Name ubuntu-lv
VG Name ubuntu-vg
LV Write Access read/write
LV Creation host, time ubuntu-server, 2018-08-14 04:30:49 +0000

# open 1
LV Size 10.00 GiB
Current LE 2560

Try another 10GB

#lvreduce -L10G /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu-lv

Google Cloud Storage Nearline Personal Linux Desktop Backup

Backup data to the cloud for cheap with Google Cloud and Nearline storage. I use Google Cloud Storage Nearline to backup my desktop, openmediavault NAS, servers, and more. Here is how I do it!

1. First, sign in here. It may prompt to setup billing if that has not been done:

2. Next, create a project, and then create a cloud storage bucket.

For example, my project is called ‘personal-backup’ and an example bucket for this demo is ‘something_bkup’, nearline storage class.

3. Ok once a bucket has been created, next install the app gsutil:

$ sudo pip install gsutil

4. After installing, run gsutil config to generate authorization. This will give a link to click on to authorize access to the google cloud account.

$ gsutil config

5. Next, create a small script (and sudo chmod +x to make executable) which will specify which directories to backup to the bucket. The options below will work like rsync to keep the backup in sync with local.

(There are other gsutil options available if desired – see the help info.)

Example backup script file name and location:


And contents of /usr/local/bin/gcbackup for user jsmith:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Backup selected directories to a GoogleCloud Nearline bucket
# Example daily cron:
# @daily /usr/local/bin/gcbackup >/dev/null 2>&1

# Directories to backup to the cloud 
dir=( "/home/jsmith/Documents" "/home/jsmith/Music" "/home/jsmith/syncthing" "/home/jsmith/Pictures" "/home/jsmith/Videos" )

# Bucket name 

# Backup specified directories!
for i in "${dir[@]}"; do      
    /usr/local/bin/gsutil -m rsync -r -d $i gs://$bucket/$(hostname)$i

6. Add a daily cron:

$ crontab -e

# backup to google cloud nearline
@daily /usr/local/bin/gcbackup >/dev/null 2>&1


This can even be used to backup servers, a NAS, or any Linux directories on any rig. For example this is backing up /var/backups and /var/www for a host:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Backup selected directories to a GoogleCloud Nearline bucket
# Example daily cron:
# @daily /usr/local/bin/gcbackup >/dev/null 2>&1

# Directories to backup to the cloud 
dir=( "/var/backups" "/var/www" )

# Bucket name 

# Backup specified directories!
for i in "${dir[@]}"; do      
    /usr/local/bin/gsutil -m rsync -r -d $i gs://$bucket/$(hostname)$i

As with any service, be sure to review the rates, fees, and charges before starting.

Create Haskintos USB

Step 1: Down load Unibeat anh MultiBeat from

Step 2: Download Mac OS HighSierra from app Store ( not the full image/package)

Step 3:  After down load HighSierra from step 2, run these command to prepare/create img file for Unibeat:

Open Terminal and run: sudo -s
Enter admin credentials to gain root access and cut-n-paste the following 3 commands

mkdir /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\
cd /macOS\ Install\ Data
find . -mount | cpio -pvdm /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\

PS: Wait /enter until it complete


Step4: Insearch a 16GB USB and format it with GUID / Extend Journal Mac

Step 5:  run Unibeat and create USB installer of MacOS

Step 6: on the PC need to install MacOS , boot to Bios and set EFI boot, AHCI Sata mode…

Step 7: Boot from USB installer of MacOS  and install MacOS

Step 8: Install multibeat on HDD

Add/remove passphrase to a private key

Of course you can add/remove a passphrase at a later time.

  • add one (assuming it was an rsa key, else use dsa)
    openssl rsa -aes256 -in your.key -out your.encrypted.key
    mv your.encrypted.key your.key

    the -aes256 tells openssl to encrypt the key with AES256.

    As ArianFaurtosh has correctly pointed out: For the encryption algorithm you can use aes128aes192aes256camellia128camellia192camellia256des (which you definitely should avoid), des3 or idea

  • remove it
    openssl rsa -in your.key -out

    you will be asked for your passphrase one last time
    by omitting the -aes256 you tell openssl to not encrypt the output.

    mv your.key

How to detect changes in a directory with Bash

Sometimes it may be useful to have a script detect whether the contents in a directory have changed since the last time script was run, but excluding some of the files or directories inside. This may be used, among other things, to make backups, for example: there are situations where, instead of doing incremental backups, one might want to do a full backup, but only if there are any changes. Notice that I’m not talking about “monitoring” a directory in real time to detect changes (for that, check out inotify).

The stat way

To check a complete directory without excluding anything inside it, it’s probaly enough to use stat.

You can use a script like this:

The way it works is quite simple. The script somehow needs to keep track of the results of running stat on the directory from one time to the next. To do this, it just uses a text file (specified by the variable OLD_STAT_FILE): if the file exists, it will load its contents in the variable OLD_STAT, if not, it will just set OLD_STAT to any string (‘nothing’, in the example). Then, the script just runs stat on the directory, and compares the result with the OLD_STAT value, if they differ, it means that there was some change in the directory. In such case, you can do whatever you want (backup the directory, or whatever) and then you need to update the contents of the text file where you keep the result of stat -t.

Excluding things from the directory

If we want to check whether the directory has changed but excluding one or more files or directories inside the main directory, we can take a different route. The general process is the same: keep and “old status” of the directory and compare with the “new status”, but instead of using stat we can use a series of commands.

Here’s the code for the new script:

The structure of this script is similar to the previous one. Instead of using stat we are using the sha1sum of something to control whether things have changed or not. The key line in this script is where we assign NEW_SUM, let’s disect it:

  • find $DIR_TO_CHECK/* \! -path "$PATH_TO_EXCLUDE" -print0: First, we get a list of all the files in the directory withfind. Using the parameter -path preceded with \! tells find to exclude the specified path. You may specify more than one path repeating that same structure (\! -path $PATH_1 \! -path $PATH_2 ...). We use -print0 to force findto separate the file names with a null character, instead of a new line (we need that to pipe things properly intoxargs).
  • xargs -0 du -b --time --exclude=$PATH_TO_EXCLUDE: We get a list of all those files (excluding the path or paths that we want to ignore) with their disk usage (size), and a date and time of last modification. That is, each line of the output has the form ” 
  • sort -k4,4: We sort the previous list by the 4th field, which is the full path of the file or directory. This sorted list, in a way, reflects the “status” of the whole directory we want to check. If a file or directory is added, removed or renamed, or the size or modification time of any line in this listing changes, this listing will reflect that change.
  • sha1sum: A sum (for example a sha1 sum) of the previous listing is a way to encode the “status” of our directory (excluding whatever we want to exclude). So, at this point, doing the sha1sum of the list we obtain a piece of data that encodes somehow a particular state of the directory.
  • awk '{print $1}': This is done just to clean up the output of sha1sum.

That’s all there is to it. Each time the script is run, it calculates this key sum. If the current sum differs from the old one (that was read from the file), we can be sure that something changed in our directory.
